Law School Rankings By Employment Outcomes:  Florida, Texas

Following up on my previous posts on Law School Rankings By Employment Outcomes:

Derek Muller (Pepperdine) blogs legal employment outcomes among Florida's 11 law schools and Texas's 9 law schools:

In Florida, there are two big surprises:  Florida International (81.0% full-time, long-term, bar passage-required and J.D.-advantage jobs), and Stetson (79.7%) joined Florida State (81.7%) and Florida (81.5%) at the top of the rankings.  Miami lagged behind (71.2%).  Five law schools had rates below 51% (St. Thomas 50.9%, Florida A&M 50.3%, Ave Maria 50%, Barry 48.7%, Western Michigan-Cooley 45.3%).

In Texas, Baylor led the state with 88.0% full-time, long-term, bar passage-required and J.D.-advantage jobs and only 2 law school-funded jobs, followed by Texas (84.5%, 11) and SMU (83.7%, 0). South Texas (54.2%, 1) and Texas Southern (42.9%, 0) were the worst-performing schools.  The biggest changes from 2014 were Baylor (+ 15.2 percentage points) and South Texas (- 18.6%).
